A legacy gift to Homeward Bound of Marin helps ensure that coming generations have access to safe, supportive and affordable shelter, offering a path out of homelessness toward housing and health.

Starting with a single shelter for four families in 1974, Homeward Bound has become the largest provider of services for homeless families and individuals in our community. With your support, we have built a record of success, stability and innovation, laying groundwork to play a vital role in the decades to come.

With a planned gift of any size, you will help secure the future of our essential services. A range of opportunities exist to meet your planning goals, including a bequest in your will or trust, a gift of retirement assets including appreciated stock, a gift from a donor-advised fund or a charitable trust.
